12 year old boy kills both parents
Not only are parents killing children, children are also killing parents. This world is really coming to an end.
Documents released in the case of a 12-year-old Colorado boy accused of fatally shooting his parents and wounding two siblings show prosecutors filed nine charges against him, including two counts of first-degree murder.
The documents released Monday by a judge at the request of prosecutors also offer new details from investigators alleging the boy tried to hurt his 5-year-old sister with a knife and stabbed and shot his 9-year-old brother. The Denver Post and KUSA-TV report that the documents were released after a closed court hearing.
Police said they found the bodies of Charles and Marilyn Long on March 1 after somebody called the police emegency dispatcher to report a shooting at their Burlington home, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) east of Denver and near the Kansas state line.
Prosecutors have not decided whether to charge the boy as an adult
The boy's siblings were expected to recover from their injuries.
The Longs, both in their early 50s, had seven children; four are grown and no longer live at home.
Marilyn Long homeschooled the children and ran the children's ministry at the local Evangelical Free Church. Her husband served as a church elder and was a snack delivery driver.
The couple was buried Friday.
